Jets news:

Winnipeg Free Press:  Jets look to reward fans with full effort.  The Jets are going to need a full effort from everyone when you play a ‘heavy’ team like the Rangers.  New York, despite playing the second game of a back-to-back, has a pretty solid 9-2-2 record in game 2.

Winnipeg Sun:  Jets fans deserve big game against Rangers.  Almost as big a story as the return of NHL hockey to Winnipeg, has been the impact these fans have had on each and every game played at the MTS Centre this season.  Coach Noel discussed this phenomenon regarding the fans in today’s press conference (link below).

New York Times:  Raucous fans make Winnipeg tough at home.  Really great read by Jeff Klein.  Always happy to see a wider audience gain an appreciation for what the Winnipeg fans bring to the table.

TSN:  Jets have work cut out for them against Rangers.  New York comes to the Peg’ having beaten the Jets 3 times already this season, outscoring the Jets 8-1.  They possess the 3rd best road record as well.  A tall order for the Jets to overcome.

Illegal Curve:  Jets game day post-practice audio.  Ondrej Pavelec, Antti Miettinen, Zach Bogosian, Andrew Ladd and Chris Thorburn.

Illegal Curve:  Coach Noel game-day press conference.  Injury update (Antropov, Fehr, Thorburn & Buff).  Playing against the Rangers.  Team still having desire to compete.  Lineup changes (Clitsome in playing with Stuart).  Play of Miettinen.  And more.
